That is a strange issue. Do have any certs installed in your Java environment? Could you setup a stock JDK and try running the standalone with that?
I thought the same thing. This error is running with a new install of the JDK. I was able
to run the Clearspace beta on this same machine but I did not try a 1.0 version.
I found the problem. The Solaris JDK adds an additional security provider in the number 1 position (sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11) in the file $/jre/lib/security/java.security. This provider does not appear in the Windows version.
I moved that provider to the end of the list and Clearspace started OK.
I got this same error, but the solution didn't work for me. I encountered it under Windows XP with WAR version clearspace 1.1.1. I rotated the java.security providers but doing that didn't help me.
This is what my list of providers looks like:
This is for JDK 1.5.0_11 on XP.
Also look at your %JAVA_HOME% environment variable and verify that you
are modifying the the right java.security.
